Aug 09 RIGS Fly Shop

Happening Now: We are starting to see more interest in hopper patterns but its still early for the larger patterns. Fish are spooky so move slow and try to make long casts. Hopper dropper fishing the banks will produce fish. That being said Nymphing the deep runs and pools will find you more fish during the heat of the day.

Most Productive:Nymphing stonfly patterns with drowned trico adults or other small mayfly nymphs near the bottom.

Water Clarity:Gunni Green

Jul 22 RIGS Fly Shop

Happening Now: Fishing great both upstream and down from the confluence of the north fork. The North fork is down and at a cross-able level so hitting the river from either side. Working the banks as well as the fast runs will produce fish.
Fish seem to be most active in the morning and head to deeper water in the afternoon.

Most Productive:Dry Dropper with small mayfly emergers. Nymphing caddis pupa and mayfly emergers will also produce some nice fish. Dont pass up the faster runs either, cause fish are hanging the the feeding lanes. You will find pods of fish feeding on trico's so getting upstream of the rising fish and getting a good down stream drift will get some eats as well.

Water Clarity: Gunny Green.

Hopper dropper fishing the banks will produce fish. That being said Nymphing the deep runs and pools will find you more fish during the heat of the day.

Most Productive:Smaller Dry dropper with a sallie adult and mayfly dropper. Fish have been hanging out close to the bank as well as in the faster runs so dont pass up water with out throwing a few casts.

Water Clarity:Gunni Green
